You voted so here it is, the 3 foolproof recipes I use whenever I attempt to make a layer cake.
Just a quick disclaimer, I am no professional. In fact, I would say I’m very much an amateur as I’ve never baked any technically challenging recipes. I like to stick to – easy and works every time – recipes.
Most of the cakes that I make are vanilla flavoured which I then colour and stack. I have tried numerous recipes and the one I’m about to share is by far the most consistent and most stable when layering. This is a denser recipe, so if you’re after fluffy this isn’t the recipe for you. I would recommend a dense cake that isn’t too soft as it’s less likely to fall apart when stacking.
This one is from the amazing Vanessa from Cakestyle. An Australian based cake maker who teaches how to make amazing cakes on her YouTube channel. I highly recommend checking out her channel and website.
This buttercream again is one from Cakestyle.
For those of you who think buttercream is too sweet, I’ve got you covered! Check out this amazing recipe for Half cream cheese icing – a hybrid between cream cheese icing and buttercream.
There you have it! If you try any of the recipes out be sure to tag me and let me know how you got on!
Happy Baking and Happy cake making!
